    Default Samsung Link Platform draining battery

    Anyone know what this is? It's killing my battery! It started shooting up after Group Play updated and I don't even use it

    Reading through this thread I have to say I begin to understand why people flock to iphones. I HATE the Apple universe but there is something to be said about everything just working perfectly right out of the box. In the Samsung/Android universe it seems like we're always having to dodge shrapnel (LOL). While I think the payoff in fredom and flexibility is well worth it, I can really see how people who couldn't care less about technology in its own right would just love to kick back in the well-padded Apple coccoon.

    Any idea what it does? I turned it off too but I'd like to know what it might screw with. I assume it's just app update crap.

    Its an app called Samsung Link...it allows you to connect the phone to a Samsung TV or other Samsung device and stream media...I don't need it,

    I just totally uninstalled it. It turns out that you don't need to be rooted to uninstall this.

    Hopefully there are no adverse affects to me unistalling it because I don't need it and it was running today for no reason.

    When u turn it off, it won't go away immediately from the battery stats, it should go away after some time
